Notes for Jacob Lincoln BALLINGER
* Source: Daughter Ina's birth certificate
**Source: Headstone
***Marriage certificate on file at Ransom County, ND Clerk of District Court, Vol. I-14-13. Original marriage certificate lost when the farm house burned down.
An unusual, but false, family legend says he once was a sea captain and wore an earring in his ear to ward off evil spirits at sea! To the best knowledge of all concerned, he was always a farmer.
